An Italian Executive Chef and Ceo, Roberto Bellini makes sure everyone gets to order the food they like. (His wife, Maria Luisa also handles another branch in Marikina.) We tried the following :mushroom soup, freshly made pappardelle pasta with truffle cream and prosciutto ; fettucini with seafood; spaghetti bolognese; Tenderloin steak with pepper sauce ; focaccia bread and bread sticks....

They have average food, sometimes too salty or too bland. I find it expensive for what they're serving. Ambience and Service is great though. Some waiter speaks italian!

To know this restaurant is an insider information. It is located far from those people that you would be expect to know what is genuine Italian food. But this restaurant IS through and through genuine! It's hidden in a small street in the Cubao part of Quezon City. From the first moment you enter the place, you feel in the... More

I went here during a company event. Bellini's is an Italian restaurant with a wide range of authentic Italian food. It's a bit pricey here but I guess you'll pay for the quality of the food. My favorite antipasto (appetizer) here was the SalameMisti e formaggi. It was a huge plate of mixed cold cuts with cheese. I loved the... More

The Beef Carpaccio had to be redone. First it came sliced thickly. Being owned by an Italian, the resto should know how to slice the Carpaccio thinly. Aside from that, the beef had a bad smell. We complained and it was replaced with one that was okay. Pasta and soup was good but simply overpriced. I could have eaten in... More

We tried their Vongole and Rustica Pasta, Grilled Pork Steak, which were average for our taste. But the Osso Buco made up for it all. Meat shanks which are really tender, cooked in tasty tomato sauce. Very flavorful. Very good.

Bellini's was featured in the movie One More Chance and we went to satisfy our curiosity. We ordered the chili, oil, and garlic pasta with extra Italian sausage, onion and bacon pizza, and lemonade. We left loving only the lemonade. The pasta was uninteresting and the pizza was made with cheap ingredients, particularly the dough. I hoped to spice things... More

Went here based on a recommendation. The interiors are very typical of a vintage italian tourist restaurant complete with faux grapes, empty chianti bottles and various cliche scenes painted on the ceiling. As I was with a group of friends we chose a number of plates to share and while the food was okay it was nothing to write home... More

I have eaten at both the Rizal and Cubao branches of Bellini's and somehow I enjoyed the food better in Rizal branch. In Cubao, although the food was still good, I found the servings to be smaller. And, in Rizal, the pastas and pizzas tastes more authentic Italian and not "Philippinized."
